From the Editor 


Change is inevitable. During the summer prioc to the beginning of tail 200 1 , we planned 
changes to the yearbodc based cm a decreased budget that was brought about largely by 
proration, which occurred during the previous academic year. I think we all have been 
f cmnally introduced to prcn^tion and the impact it has had on education both inside and 

itside the classrotHn. Such changes and short<^es of cash flow have occurred all over the 
Wversity of Mantevallo can^)us. Money has been in short supply for many of the de- 
partments and student organizations. Though we were not under proration at press time, 
the events of the previous fiscal year ccmtinued to impact the entire University commu' 
nity on an almost daily basis. 

Student publications have especially felt the blow and in many ways we are still trying 
to deal with our shrinkiE^ budgets. 

I know whrai many c^ you receive this year's edition ai the Montage, you will notice 
that the boc^ may seem a little different as far as appearance and even some amt^it. Yes, 
your observations are indeed correct. The yearbook has endured many obvious changes. 
The book is a little bit smaller, having gone from a size 9 to a size 8. The number of pages 
has also been reduced to 160 and the number of processH»lor pages has gcme frcnn 32 to 
24. Board weight and paper weight have also been reduced. In addition, this year's bode 
will be available to 700 of you, as opposed to the 800 who have been able to obtain a cogy 
in years past. You may even notice that sections have been shortened to fit the new 
format of the publication. 
JThe theme of diange not only has to do with the physical changes to the book, but also 
<''%e ^e«<dianging experience that is ccUege for those who are f (ntunate enough to attend. 
Our first concept/theme meeting with the full staff, many of thatn new members, was 
scheduled for Thursday, September 13. Though the ideas for the bodk's theme had been 
discussed throughout the summer, as is typically the case, this would be the meeting to 
introduce the working theme to the entire staff and let the creativity fly. little did we 
know at the time we made these plans that the events of two days prior to this meeting 
would forever change us alL The staff, dd and new alike, embraced the conc^ of change 
for the theme. Discussion led to the idea that as we continue to learn and grow through' 
out our lives, we continue to grow aiul change. Each til us embarks on our own journey, 
an odyssey that is unique to eadi individuaL Thus, the theme for the 2001-2002 Montage 
was bom. 

The yearbodc, currently in its 95th year of publication, by one name or another, has 
been part of the University's history since 1907. Regardless of the obstacles we face, our 
vi«on for this publication, the newspaper, and the Uterary magazine, is that the publica' 
tions will continue to be here, serving the University community, documenting the 
IMversity's history, and acting as the official keepers of Montevallo memories for the 
next 95 years and beyond. Certainly they will change as time goes by, but all will survive 
and will continue to be valuable items to be cherished. 

The size of the Monxage may have changed, but in no way, shape, or form has tte 
quality diminished. Coveri^e, photography, editorial, and pi^e design will continue at a 
p level of excdlence of which students, faculty, and staff can be proud.

Tuesday, September 1 1 , 2001 , bqgan like any other dby. Uttle did we kmnv as we scum 
to our classrocnns and offices that morning that the events to come would f cnrever change 
our natirai's histcxry. 

Shcntly after the start of 8 ajcn. classes, we learned that a large airliner had crashed into 
the north tower, 1 WcMrld Trade Center, in New York Qty. Across can^nis, students, 
faculty, and staff tuned in to radios, televisicm sets, and the Internet for the breakit^ 
news. Then, as we listened and watched, a seccnd airliner slammed into the south tower, 
2 World Trade Center, and it became all too dear that this was not just a horrible accident, 
but an unspeakable act of temwism. A third airliner was flown into the Pentagcm, in 
Washington, D.C., causing (me of the building's five sides to collapse. Approximately 20 
minutes later, as the south tower of the Wcnrld Trade Center cdUbpsed, a fourth hijacked 
airliner crashed in rural Pennsylvania, taken down by its passengers, several of whom 
had learned of the news on the ground from loved ernes and had determined that they 
would stc^ the terrorists' deadly mission or die tryii^. At 10;28 a.m.. Eastern Standard 
Time, the north tower of the World Trade Craiter cdlapsed 

The horrific images of that day can never be erased frcHn oat memories. But September 
11, one of the darkest days in America's history, will also be raooembered as a day that 
broi^t out the best in us. It was a day that was supposed to tear us apart, but instead 
brought us together. The chaos and vidi^ice that the terrorists thought their actions would 
bring about in the streets of America instead occurred half a world away. In America, 
strangers came to the aid of those in need, and people came together as a imited family, in 
suppcnt of their government, to protect a way of life based on good ratho* than evil, 
f reedcsn rather than tyranny. It was a day when (ordinary people were transformed into 
heroes, many oi them making the ultimate sacrifice. 

This edition of the Montage is dedicated to the memcwy of the thousands who perished 
that day, from the innocent victims to the haroic firefighters, pdUice officers, security and 
medical perscsmd, and others who rushed to the scene to he^; to those who lived to see 
another day and omtinue tlieir devoted service to their communities; and to the military 
perscmnel stationed around the globe who, as a£ press time, were serving their country 
and the free world, putting their lives on the liti^ to defend f reedcnn. 

We will not forget.

As you embark on this never-ending journey of 
learning, there will be a point along the way that 
will require you to stop for a moment of contem- 
plation. Hopefully, this moment will not stop you 
dead in your tracks, but be resolved before you get 
there. Friendships and activities are what make the 
individual, and the decisions you make reflect 
how others will perceive you. Through all life's 
twists and turns, surely it will not consist of all 
work and no play. Let your choices make the best 
of it. Through every experience and choice you 
have to make, take something away that will be- 
come part of who you are. When the two roads 
diverge, be able to make that decision. Go ahead 
and enjoy yourself. This might be a once-in-a- 
lif etime opportunity. You will always remember 
the good times, as well as the bad. Every hour in 
every day produces memories in the making. It is 
all right to 'live for the moment,' just not at the 
expense of the future.

Love. Right: CJrrwbay Mouth heats it up far the

On Friday, April 5, UM students were 
treated to an outdoor music festival. Chilling 
winds could not dampen this year's Springfest. 
In spite of the temperature and small crowds at 
the outset, the University Program Council, 
along with the National Alumni Association, 
once again made Springfest a successful event. 

Around two-o'clock that afternoon, the 
practice soccer field began to draw the atten- 
tion of Montevallo residents as bands began ar- 
riving to set up for their performances and last- 
minute adjustments were made. Groups of stu- 
dents began showing up shordy thereafter. Early 
arrivals entertained themselves with a few 
rounds of frisbee, chitchat, or even laying out 
in the bright sunshine while enjoying the cool 
breeze that marked this year's event. 

The event consisted of six bands, several of 
them local. The first perfomiers to hit it all off 
were Miss Lucifer's Love, who performed at 2l30 

p.m. Jered's Law, Loose Stone, and Four on th' 
Hoor entertained the audience for about an hou 
each. The few spectators who were there fo 
the early bands sat huddled together against th( 
cold as each group performed some of the popu 
lar songs of the year. 

As the sun went down, the action and th 
crowd size grew. Two locally acclaimed bands 
Cowboy Mouth and Better than Ezra, were theri 
for our musical enjoyment. They helped hea 
up the stage as they jammed through a variet 
of some of their best hits. The crowd steadO' 
increased for these performances. Students cami 
bundled in blankets, jackets, and caps as thi 
night progressed. 

As Springfest 2002 drew to an end, we coulc 
conclude that it was well worth the effort ani 
time that was put into it. Not much could com 
pare to a beautiful, cool day filled with friend 
and great music.

On October 27, students, faculty, 
and family gathered on Main Quad for 
Family Day. 

Every year Housing and Residence 
Life holds a Family Day celebration. 
Family Day gives friends and family of 
Montevallo students a chance to see 
the campus, as well as have some good 
ol' Southern fun. 

This year, the weather for Family 
Day was chilly, but a smile on any 
child's face was enough to warm hearts. 
Children were allowed to dress up in 
their Halloween costumes and parade 
around the quad for everyone to see. 

Along with the cakewalk and face 
painting, there were many different games iii which chil- 
dren and adults could participate. UM resident assistants 
were there manning the game booths and refreshment 
stands, and where would Family Day be without Freddie 
Falcon! The UM mascot was also there participating in the 
games, making people laugh, and having a good time wher- 
ever he went. 

Everyone was invited to a great fried cliicken lunch in 
the Caf ! Afterward there was a tour of rooms, where fam- 
ily and friends got a chance to see some of the residence- 
hall rooms. TTiere were plenty of prizes to give away this 
year and everyone seemed to enjoy winning huge cakes from 
the Cakewalk. If you missed this year's Family Day, you 
missed a f un-for-the-f amily treat.

The 2001 SGA-sponsored Information Fair was held 
on Wednesday, September 5 , from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. Dif- 
f erait organizations from around campus set up tables in 
front of the SUB for students to come and see what op- 
portunities are available on UM's campus. 

Groups such as the Baptist Campus Ministries, Com- 
puter Services, the student publications, S.A.F.E. and 
many Greek organizations handed out information about 
who they are and what they are about to fellow students. 
Anyone interested in joining an organization could get a 
chance to ask questions and talk to members of many 
groups to get a glimpse of how getting involved can re- 
ally be beneficial. 

Getting the word out about different groups is not 
always easy. Participating in events such as the Informa- 
tion Fair allows students to gain awareness about clubs 
and events that exist and happen on their campus. Orga- 
nizations are also able to recruit new members and let the 
student body know what their accomplishments are.

Amid the swirl of activity that is College Night, the 
student body selects two students from the senior class to 
represent the University as Mr. and Ms. Montevallo. Blake 
Hudson and Mayla Hartzog were this year's honorees. 

Hudson, a history and biology major, distinguished 
himself academically, presenting work at Undergraduate 
Research Day and earning the honor of Senior Elite for 
both biology and history. He played for the Falcons bas- 
ketball team and coached intramural games for his fra- 
ternity, AKL. As senior class President, Hudson was a 
visible leader on campus. He also served as President of 
ODK and Golden Key, and was involved with charitable 
endeavors such as food and toy donations, as well as the 
clean-up of the Ebenezer Swamp. Hudson received the 
Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, the highest award at 
UM, during the Honors Day convocation. 

Hartzog, a business major and a member of Alpha 
Gamma Delta sorority, was also a highly visible member 
of the student body. In addition to earning exceptional 
academic marks, she devoted much time to service. As a 
Montevallo Master, Hartzog assisted at major University 
functions. As a Student Orientation Leader, she helped 
new students get acclimated to the college environment. 
Hartzog also served as SGA Business Senator and Presi- 
dent of Phi Chi Theta honor society.

Approximately 100 students gath-

sponsored Drive-In Movie. The typi-

blankets, food, and other items they 
felt would be useful. Once everyone 
was snugly settled, the movie was

The first movie was Ocean's

Julia Roberts. Dapper Danny Ocean 
(George Clooney) plans and conducts 
the most elaborate casino heist in history. He handpicks

lion from three Las Vegas casinos owned by Terry Benedict 
(Andy Garcia), who happens to be dating Danny's ex-wife 
Tess (Julia Roberts). 

The second movie was T/i£ Otiiers, starring Nicole 
Kidman, Fionnla Flanagan, Christopher Eccleston, Alakina 
Mann, James Bentley, and Eric Sykes. This is a thriller in 
which Grace (Nicole Kidman) moves into a mansion on a 
remote island to await the return of her husband from

Finding your niche. That is what this is all about. 
Maybe you have already accomplished your goal, 
set the standard, and are well on your way, but 
then again, you might be one of the many who is 
still searching for where you might fit in. Within 
the day you come across so many faces, so many 
personalities, that you could, no doubt, write a 
book about them. Friends are a must. Who else is 
going to give you a copy of the notes you missed, 
or hang out with you at the many social func- 
tions? Exploring the many options available for 
you may require a little time and patience. Time? 
Who has it? Yet, time limits will always require 
your utmost expediency in order to get ahead. 
With all the effort put into accomplishing your 
goals, success must be somewhere down the road. 
Whatever the purpose you have set for yourself, 
you now have come to that point of execution, 
which will one day lead to your destination.

A journey to victory. A journey to priceless experi- 
ence. A journey to long-lasting friendships. A true 
journey to personal growth. Students who take 
part in College Night take a very long journey 
during the months of January and February. Re- 
hearsals, sign raisings, and all the athletics games 
one could take part in. Traveling toward the goal 
of self -growth and achievement. College Night is 
about so much more than just performances and 
athletic events. College Night is about roaming 
down the road to real experience and unforget- 
table memories. People travel back home and 
many get a glimpse at just how long and full their 
journey has been. The experience is different for 
each and every person, just as the passage and the 
road taken is different. No matter what. College 
Night is a road well traveled and a journey worth

O 34 College Mght 



The GV production opened with one intense guitar 
player in the spotlight blaring out the Star Spangled Ban- 
ner while the rest of the stage remained dark. The lights 
came on to reveal a crowd of boys and girls with wild hair- 
styles and loud, colorful clothes dancing to the music. 

The front man of the band , Cullen Ellis , played by Chris 
Carr, began performing as his band kept on jamming. Cullen 
had everything a young man could want; talent, fans that 
adored him, and a beautiful and devoted girlfriend named 
Amanda Lawley, played by Amanda Budura. Despite all 
these fortunes, when Cullen was approached by the seduc- 
tive and ambitious Laura TidweU, an agent who was por- 
trayed by Kimberly Bailey, the young man started to desire 
a fancier road to fame and fortune. 

He was not completely swayed by the offer made by 
the sexy Laura to make him rich and famous. She followed 
Cullen to the fun-filled church service with the fabulous 
choir singers, Leah Luker, Alison Perrin, and Bradley 
Hodges, and the notorious sermons provided by Reverend 
Avarice , played by Reagan Denson. Everyone at the church 
tried to persuade Cullen not to give in to temptation. How- 
ever, Laura was able to wheel and deal until even Rever- 
end Holland had dollar signs in his eyes. 

Cullen started to live the high life, paying attention to 
only his music and what Laura wanted him to do. The 
band played gigs at Ballard's Skating Rink, with pretty 

backup singers and screaming girls. Amanda's heart was 
broken by Cullen and his selfishness. But Cullen, too, be- 
came fed up with his new boss' control over his life and 

One night a strange phone call from Laura saying that 
Amanda had taken a lot of drugs in a hotel room changed 

OrT^~r~r~r~v T everything. When Cullen arrived, Laura was there dead 
L I L L L I and the police showed up shortly after and found him at 
the scene. As he sat in jail, Cullen told the guard, Pete, 
what happened to htm and about his music. The whole 
time his cell mate , a rough character named J.T. , kept pick- 
ing fights and smarting off. 

As the story unfolded, Amanda proved her devotion 
and Cullen's innocence. J.T. was one of Laura's old clients, 
whom she dumped. Out of anger over his finished career, 
J.T. set up Cullen so he could get away with murder. As 
Amanda explained the details to Cullen, he remembered 
how in love with her he still was. As the couple left the 
jail, Amanda thanked Pete, who happened to be her fa- 
ther, and left both her boyfriend and the audience sur- 
prised at the unexpected twist that closed the performance.

The Crusades, Joan of Ark, New York, and a failing 
theatre company . . . What do these things have in com- 
Trion? Alt were part of the 2002 PV College Night Show. 
/The show opens iii New York City in a warehouse, which 
f is the home of the 3"^ West Theatre Company. Max, played 
by Justin Murdock, explains to the audience how and why 
the theatre company is falling into financial ruin. 

John, portrayed by Leif Evans, is the head of the com' 
pany and sees his future in the theatre as a dwiirdling drea|n. 
Jude, played by Blair Chitwood, is the lead actor of the 
theatre cornpany , and his only passion is the theatre. Max7 
who keeps direct contact with the audience, proxides comi- 
cal rehef through the production. 

Jude calls the cast to stand up for the theatre and keeps 
them enthused by his new play. Just one detail the cast is 
unaware of: He has yet to write the script. Jude, John, and 
Max give their best effort to write the saving script , but to 
no avail. Searching for inspiration, Jude wanders into a 
garden, nesded behind a nearby abandoned church, where 
the plot of his play begins to form. The audience is taken 
into the thought process as the stage is transformed to revo- 
lutionary France. Eleanor, portrayed by Amy Johnson, is 
curious about the singing coming from the garden. She 
goes to investigate, and stumbles into the theatrical world. 
Jude begs Eleanor to play the heroine, Joan of Ark, in his 
production. He discusses the proposal with Max and John, 


-— ^ andi 

and the cast starts rehearsals. However, the theatre building 
is hopelessly lost due to the financial crisis. 

John becomes disillusioned and walks out on the cast. 
From here the audience loses its perception of what it fore- 
sees happening next. As the stage moves back to the church 
and garden, John and the audience are attending a memo- 

l for Joan of Ark and the theatre company. Here the play 

I the theatre company are resurrected. Eleanor, portray- 
ing Joan of Ark, hands her sword to John in a symbolic ges- 
M ture of taking over the company once again. The entire com- 

I , r I , I (, pany moves to the church with the opening production of 
Joan of Ark. Now in typical musical fashion, the Purple side 
production ends happily with the success of both the com- 
pany and the play. 

The PV production was charismatic, funny, dramatic, 
and inventive. The musical was breathtaking in the dramatic 
way the cast moved from the present day to revolutionary 
France. The costumes were inventive and portrayed the time 
and periods extremely well. Overall, the PV cast did a fan- 
tastic job bringing this original script to life.

^42 College Night 


by Patricia Lovelady 

College Night spirit might be said to start in 
January, on the first Sunday night before the start 
of spring-semester classes. In reality, it begins at 
Freshman Orientation, where the Golds and the 
Purples teU about their respective sides. It con- 


tinues in October with the College Night mixer, 
where new students decide to go Gold or Purple, 
and loyal side players welcome their new mem- 
bers. When students return from the winter break, 
the spirit resumes for all to see when the trees 

and greenery across Main Quad take on an over- 
night adornment of purple, gold, and cow-print 
ribbons in every shade and variation imaginable. 
Just before the pep rally , the side signs are unveiled 
in front of the bookstore, and then the side mem- 
bers complete the trek to Bibb Graves for the Col- 
lege Mght pep rally. Here they introduce their cabi- 
nets and casts and build on the spirit foundation. 
EXiring the next few days, spirit kicks in full time 
as show preparations get under way. Even those 
who choose to remain green are aware of the Col- 
lege Night spirit as the sounds of side members 
rehearsing and traversing across campus fill the 
night. It grows to a fever pitch as the athletics 
competitions begin and reaches its culmination on 
Homecoming weekend, when the sides face off 
on the court and on the stage.

In terms of intensity, College Night athletics ranked a very close second to the actual shows. Side spirit and team 
dedication could be seen in mass quanrities. Bearing colorful signs and wearing flashy, accessorized clothing, team 
supporters were there to help rally their side to victory. Friends and alumni joined in to offer their support and show 
that they still carried side spirit. For the most part, the sun was out and the humidity rose. However, there were 
those rare days that the air carried a chill, which left many bundled in gloves and heavy coats. Yet, the crowd of 
spectators grew with each day of competition and the air was charged with excitement as the two opposing sides 
l^egan each match. 

The games for this year consisted of women's volleyball, men's flag football, women's and men's basketball, and 
co-ed soccer. The Gold side won both women's and men's basketball and soccer games. The Purple side won the 
women's volleyball and flag football games. Another aspect of College Night athletics is cheerleading. Though not 
an actual sport , both cheerleading teams are judged and given a score based on the routines and cheers they present. 
The Gold side also won the allotted points for having the best cheers.

The 2002 QiUege Night dedication was presented 
to Marion Brooks BrowTi, Coordinator of the Central 
Gilendar Office and Manager of Palmer Hall Audito- 

Brown, who h^an her career at UM as a Communi- 
cation Studies major in 1 988 , began worldiig for Hous- 
inu :uid Residence Life in 1996 and moved to Alumni 
Kcl.itions in 1999, before taking up her current posi- 

NX^e a student, Brcwn was editor of Tlte Alabam- 
ian , associate editor of the Maitage, and editor of T/ic 
Toiver. She was a member of R Kappa Delta and Al- 
pha Psi Om(^a, and was the senior elite in Communi- 
cation Arts in 1994.She served asfine arts senator, and 
was a member of Wlvo's WIto Among Students hi AmaTcan Cb/!eges and Universities. As 
a CoU^e Night participant, Brown collaborated on the script, served as a creative 
consultant, was property master and technical director, and worked on a variety of 
theatrical crews. In 1994, she served as leader of the Purple side. 

When asked about her thoughts on receiving the Qillege Night dedication, Brown 
responded with the following: "So many thoughts . . . College Night may be one of the 
most-incredible social experiments in progress. As a player, I could not see what I see 
now about the game (which is one of my greatest pleasures about CN): It is amazing to 
watch these young students learn about each other — their own capabilities and tlieir 
reliance on die capabilities of others. 1 see them make mistakes and then watch them 
think as a team to solve those problems. They learn leadership through apprenticeship 
and begin to understand how to build a team by assessing capabilities of their peers and 
placing them in their best-suited roles. What I want students to realize ahiut this Uni- 

versity and this tradition: It is a miracle that we exist. In the late 1800s, women's 
education was not that high on the state governmental priority list. It was the dedica- 
tion of two individuals that allowed the foundations of this University to be laid. And 
. . . this celebration we call CoUt^e Night . . . how amazing that we would create such a 
glorious game. One of the most-important aspects of this game that 1 want others to 
appreciate is that the participants of CN are one of many in a continuous chain — we 
are linked together by our history. There are no singular sensations . . . only one continu- 
ous chain. What we do in the present honors decades of alumni and gives us the 
common bond that we call homecoming. As a leader 1 found myself overcome by 
honor as I stood on the stage and contemplated the 74 years of those who stoLxd before 
me. Now, I am so fortunate to be able to serve as a steward of this tradition — I thought 
there would be no greater honor until 1 heard my name announced as the recipient of 
the dedication. A Htde girl from Eastaboga who csme here at die age of 1 7 ... I had no 
idea what 1 was capable of doing or being. Through the encouragement of my peers and 
confidence I gained through experience, 1 was able to achieve so much that 1 may never 
have known without QiUege Night. Satisfaction and success come through aiUabora- 
tion, but that would not be possible if it did not also bring out the individual's intrinsic 
qualities of belief in one's self and detemiination to achieve the goal of victory. I was so 
honored and humbled to serve as a leader, hut to have the confidence of both die 
Purple and Gold sides and their belief in me as an advisor and steward of our beloved 
tradition is overwhelming. There are not powerful enough words to express my feelings 
and appreciation. Almost fifteen years after making so many loyal f riendsliips through 
QiUege Night , I walked out on stage to receive the dedication — so ma:iy of the friends 
that 1 cheered with and stood by with pride were in the audience cheering for me. 1 do 
know this for certain: I will never be able to give back to CoU^e Night as much as it has 
given to me. There is no T in College Night beoiuse there is not a lot that 1 can do 
alaie, but 'we' can accomplish great things together." j

Someone once said, "There's no business like show 
business." This statement really applies to all as- 
pects of performance and entertainment. Whether 
you are in a musical production, or displaying your 
most-prized masterpiece, you are going through 
some kind of change. Though you are changing 
on the outside in the f onn of character and per- 
sonality, you are also revealing dynamic character- 
istics about yourself that might have never been 
shown otherwise. By performing, you are acquiring 
changes that promote social and expressive 
growth. You become more than the person every- 
one sees you as; you become more well-rounded by 
adding depth. During your college experience 
especially, you can learn to express your art in 
whatever form it might take and welcome the 
change it might bring into your life. Now is the 
moment to shine! Put a big grin on your face and 
step into the limelight!

On the evenings of September 27-28, the TIM Music De- 
partment presented two delightful yet thought-prq^^blg op- 
eras that not only caused spines to tingle hut also suSTes; 
showed the talent of several vocal majors. ^* 

The first opera, A Hand of Bridge, was a o^Bct of nine 
minutes of pure enjo^Tiient that explo redj:h e many straying 
thoughts of two couples as they transpire^Hi card game that is 
known to bring people together and provoke philosophical 

The card players, who were me^fce for their regular game 
of bridge, were the lawyer. Bill, an^B^iife Sally, and David, 
the businessman, and his wife, GeralAie. Through the course 
of the game, we learn through various operatic arias that each 
person is not totally happy with his current situation. All of the 
players are brought bac^^^Kility when the final player lays 
down his cards and decl^^^^Tjmp!" 

T/ie Medium, a tragedy m two acts, was indeed exciting and 
haunting on equallevels. The audiaice was introduced to Monica 
and Toby, wh^^H: compassions for each other. Tlien Ma- 
dame Flora en^PP greet Monica, who is her daughter, and 
downsize her mut^ervant, Toby. 

Madame Flora was a woman who perfonned fake seances 
for "the grieving in desperate need to communicate with their 
deceased loved onq^^^rding to the program. 

Mr. and Mrs. CS^^K and Mrs. Nolan enter the mansion 
to speak to a lost son arWa much-missed teenage daughter. The 
three characters prepared for die seance and the audience was 
dipped into a world of madness, which was the madness within 
the world of Madame Rora 's head. As the ceremony ended , Flora 
felt the cold hand of an unknown source touch her on die throat. 

As the story unfolds, it is revealed that Flora blamed the 
hand touching her neck on Toby. Flora began drinking more 
and more until her mind and her grip on the worid unraveled. 
She continued to fall deeper and deepe^^^nadness, until the 
climax of the show, when she shot anwHBBtoby. 

At the end of the performances, a similar feeling of utter 
and total madness was left with many audience members, just as 
it was formed in the mind of the character Madame Flora and 
in the apparent unhappiness of the characters in A Hami of 

A Hand of Bridge was written by Samuel Barber, and libretto 
by Qan Carlo Menotti. The Medium was written, both music 
and libretto, by Menotti. Both performances were presented 
through arrangement with G. Shirmer Inc.

On Wednesday, September 5, 2001, the UM Theatre Department opened with 
True West, a play by Sam Shepard. The purpose of this play was to give an oppxirtunity 
to several seniors to present their senior project. Julian Robinson, BFA candidate, di- 
rected the show. Chris Carr, BFA candidate, and Matt Reese, BFA candidate, starred as 
Lee and Austin, two very different brothers. 

Lee was a loner who spent much of his life living off the land in the desert. Austin 
was a family man who worked as a screen writer. As the play progressed, Austin , the Ivy 
League graduate who was a successful writer and thought he knew exacdy where his life 
was going, began trading roles with Lee, who was reckless and had no direction whatso- 
ever. Remi Newhouse played Austin's agent , Saul Kimmer, who opts to let go of Austin's 
script idea and rather pick up Lee's idea, on the basis it is more true to life. Wliile Lee 
was struggling with his new script, Austin was picking up on the devious behavior and 
getting drunk and going out to steal toasters to prove to his brother that he could be just 
as successful in his lifestyle as Lee was trying to become in his. 

Lindsey Cardone played their mother, who returns home from Alaska at the very 
end of the play to find her home has been destroyed by her feuding sons. There was no 
true resolution as the two brothers nearly lost their sanity and almost ripped the whole 
family to shreds. Brian Horton, BFA candidate, completed the set design for this show. 

Top: Lee goes inui cn\e of /us fits of Wjleiice and is ready to

arguments luitlt Austin. Chris Carr and Matt Reece totally got

audience members' spines throughout tlie entire play. Above

brother was starting to write /lis cnim script and that the agent

liolent confrontation the two brothers are exhausted arid not 
sure what exactly they are fighting about. Austin saw his

It's not too often we are sen'ed up with a dish of 
comedy as delightfully enjoyable as when UM's 
Theatre group offered its buffet of laughter, talent, 
and delight. With the help of a ver>' tast^' cast, T7ie 
An of Dijiing, a dramatic corned^' b^' Tina Howe, 
prepared a fresh look at not only the art of eating 
out properly, but also an appetizer of communica- 
tion and the damage and healing that it causes. 

Die Art ofDiimg takes place in what 
was once a townhouse, but, reno- 
vated, is now an intimate bis- 
tro called The Golden 
Carousel. Husband and wife 
team. Gal and EUen, liave 
in\'ested every dime in order 
to realize their dream. Their 
only hope is that the^' can pull 
it off and become a most-wanted 
dining spot of the uptown crowd. WiU die 
night ahead prove their uptown dreams possible or 

The goumiet production opens with Gal and 
EUen enjoying a sampling of new desserts to an al- 
most orgasmic height. The ecstasy witnessed over 
the sweets sets the perfect flavor for the rest of the 
show. The action quickly moves to the kitchen, 
where an all-out battle begins between Gal, who 
wants to eat everything in sight and over-book the 
small restaurant for the next several months, and 
Ellen, who is trying to prepare the evenings' offer- 
ings v\ith perfect quality and keep the guest list down 
to a perfect minimun^ We leam that Gal's tactic in 
becoming successful is to bring in the guests, bring 
in the money. Ellen sees it, however, as a need to 
gready satisfy smaller amounts of people. 

Soon, the first couple arrives, ready to experi- 
ence a wonderful new restaurant. We meet Paul 
and Hannah Gait , whose ability to communicate is 
left behind as we leam how capable they are of en- 
joving food. Their enjoyment matches that of Gal 
and Ellen, as is an almost sexual pleasure for them. 

The next set of diners to enter the Golden Gar- 
rousel is a writer and her publisher. Elizabeth Bar- 
row Gold is a writer who shies away from people 
and fcxxd alike. We leam that this is an after effect 
of the way her mother acted and ate. Her publisher, 
David Osslow, is quite the opposite. He is outgo- 
By Martin Austin Glass 


ing, v\itty, and healthy in appetite. Just the sinple 
mix of these two is a delight to watch. 

The final set of diners we meet is comprised of 
three ladies out to celebrate a birthday. It is clear 
from the ver\' beginning that they are not accus- 
tomed to such posh-ness. They are clearly out of 
their comfort zone and make up for this by being 
loud and boisterous. Herrick Simmons , Tony Stassio , 
and Nessa Vox are three women with 
delicious personalities who are just 
out to ha\'e gcxxJ time. 

Tliese three groups, along 
with Gal and Ellen, inter- 
mingle in conversation 
throughout the show as they 
hear the ends of conversa- 
tions, which are always the juici- 
est parts. Things begin to look 
rough as communications go haywire. 
Even Gal and Ellen look as if this might be it . . . 
maybe the restaurant won't work out . . . maybe the 
relationship is about to end . . . until ... a pseudo- 
tribal dance around the blazing fires of dessert. We 
take a sort of trip to the beginnings of dining with 
others when eating always took 
place around a large bonfire 
— a sort of tribute to 
humanity and its be- 
ginnings. Things 
are looking up for 
everyone . . . and 
the business!

In the middle of each table was a candled centerpiece; its green foliage aglow from the 
flickering flame above it. A cup filled with apple cider, a curl of steam rising from it, was 
beside each set of napkin-wrapped silvenvare. Amid the laughter and banter of various 
conversations, a soft wave of music could be heard from a comer of the great room. With 
all the red and green, hot apple cider, and holiday music, all that was lacking was the 
moonlight to cast a soft glow on a fresh blanket of white snow. 

This was only a sample of the Music Department's "Legends of Christmas" Christmas 
Feast. The Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Joseph Ardovino, perfomred holiday favor- 
ites such as Sleigh Ride, Giro! of Sliepherd, and Greensleeves. Dr. Anthony Pattin per- 
formed his own arrangement of Fantasy on O-iristmas Carols. Then there was the wide 
range of vocal talent that was heard that night. 

The Concert Choir, led by Dr. Robert Wright, filled the room with angelic harmony 
as they sang Gloria in Excelsis Deo and Rise Lip Sl^epherds and Follmv. The choir also 
performed the Christmas traditional, O Holy Night, with soprano vocalist Melanie Will- 
ianis singing the solo. Although many more songs were played and sung, there was some- 
thing about the stories read that added to the charm. 

Luke Hardt and Monica Zerbe reminded us what it would be like if we had Oiristmas 
Every Day, a narrative by William Dean Howells. Along with this funny tale Benjamin 
Middaugh also read Yes, Virginia, Tlwre is a Santa Qaus, by Francis P. Church. Holiday 
classics such as these add their own personal charm. From the music to the singing, each 
made every moment memorable. This year's Christmas Feast was definitely worth remem-

Luke Hardt's interpretation of Winnie'the-Pooh for childrens' 
theatre played on the Palmer Auditorium stage and added joy to 
the holiday season. The classic holiday story of "Eeyore Loses 
His Tail" left many young children and adults with a warm Christ- 
mas feeling. 

Pooh, along with the rest of the well-known and lovable 
characters from the Hundred Acre Woods, charmed audiences 
and brought to life the true meaning of friendship and loyalty. 

Eeyore was feeling a litde down since he was missing his tail 
and had no idea where to start looking for it; so Pooh, Piglet, 
Tigger, Christopher Robin, and the rest of the loyal group of 
friends decided go on a search to find and get their friend hack 
his missing tail in rime for Chrismas. 

EXiring their adventure there was also rime for lessons about 
good eating habits as Pooh and Piglet sang along about their 
favorite foods, while colorful props were lowered from the ceil- 
ing. Christopher Robin also gave his caring and famous lecture 
to his friend about the importance of healthy eating habits, and 
how Pooh should keep his nose out of the honey jar. 

Time was running out and there was no sight of Eeyore's tail 

Pooh decided to pay a visit to the faithful Owl for words of 

Much to Pooh's surpise, Eeyore's tail was at Owl's house. 

The characters, very relieved, presented their friend with his 
Chistmas present; his long-lost and well missed tail.

Monday, April 1, at 5:30 p.m., UM students, faculty, administration, staff, and 
other members of the Montevallo community gathered in the woods near the Student 
Retreat Center to see the inaugural firing of the Anagama kiln. Professor of Art Scott 
Meyer and his students spent the last year building the Idln and waiting for the day it 
would be fired and their pottery could be produced. 

Peter Callas, an expert on the construction of such kilns, has traveled to many places 
in the world building kilns and was in charge of the firing process at Montevallo. Callas 
passed on the information that this is one of only two kilns of its kind in the U.S. that is 
available for use by undergraduate students. 

The 40-foot long kiln provided a great site for the students to see how their efforts 
and hard work were going to pay off. 

The firing continued for more than a week, while the kiln temperature reached 
2400°F. The unloading of the pottery took place early Saturday morning, April 13. The 
energy of the students was very high as they waited, expectant and hopeful, to see how 
their pieces turned out. The pottery was put on display in the library, along with a photo 
album showing the complete construction of the kiln and the process of the firing. 

Top: A pair of art studaits prepares the "worms" required for

Berlin, Germany. New Year's Eve, 1 930. Home 
to beer gardens and cabarets. 

"Willkommen, bien venue, welcome, im Caba- 
ret, au Cabaret, to Cabaret!" 

With these words, the Emcee welcomed the 
audience and began UM's spring musical produc- 
tion of Cabaret. Palmer Auditorium 
was transformed into the Kit Kat 
Club of Berlin , just before the 
Nazi takeover. A thrust 
stage was constructed to be 
the stage of the Kit Kat 
Club, with tables on both 
sides. A steel platform 
marked the location of the 
Club's orchestra, and the set was 
decorated with mirrors. 

The musical, a joint effort of the Division of 
TTieatre and the Department of Music, was di- 
rected by Dr. David Callaghan, with musical di- 
rection by Dr. Melanie Williams. To achieve the 
German and British dialects, Luke Hardt worked 
with the actors and actresses as 
their dialect coach and 

To show the 
Nazi takeover of 
Berlin, parts of the 
set decorations 
were removed. Mir-

believed to be his friend. 

rors disappeared, revealing steel supports, bright 
colors gave way to dull colors, and the mood of 
the show changed with the set. 

Cabaret is not a typical musical. It shows how 
the Nazi takeover changed people's lives, whether 
they were Jewish, British, American, or German. 
Clifford Bradshaw, an 
American author, meets and 
falls in love with Sally 
Bowles, a British entertainer 
at die Kit Kat Club. In or- 
der to have money to pay 
for a room after Sally moves 
in with him and becomes 
pregnant , CHf f begins running 
errands for Ernst Ludwig. Un- 
known to Cliff, Ernst is a Nazi. Fraulein 
Schneider rents out her rooms to Cliff; to Fraulein 
Kost, a prostitute who entertains sailors; and to 
Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit-market owner. A re- 
lationship develops between Fraulein Schneider 
and Herr Schultz, who shows his feelings for her 
by bringing her fresh fruit every day. Though they 
are both in their sixties. Hen Schultz asks Fraulein 
Schneider to marry him, and she accepts. SaUy 
plans an engagement party for them and invites 
her friends from the club. Fraulein Schneider de- 
clines to marry Herr Schultz after being warned 
by Ernst about her future if they were to wed. If 
she were married to a Jew, the Germans would 
not let her have the license required to rent rooms. 
An attack on Herr Schultz's fruit market con- 
firms what she was told. As the story unfolds, 
Cliff learns that Sally has had an abortion. CHff 
plans to return to America and bring Sally with 
him; however, she retreats back to her former life- 
style. The abortion, along with her refusal to go 
to America, lead to the end of their relationship. 
The production ends with Cliff on a train leav- 
ing Berlin; the first leg of his journey home. In the 
last scene, as Cliff recalls his memories of the Kit 
Kat Club, the audience sees Sally watch as Fraulein 
Schneider and Herr Schultz pass through the gates 
of Auschwitz. The Nazis have taken over.

Many refer to acadeinics as a necessary evil. Some 
even say that education is really what is holding us 
back from speedy accomplishments. However, we 
should think of academics as the carpet covering 
the steps to our ambitions. A little knowledge goes 
a long way. It helps prepare us for what may lie 
ahead and sets a foundation for new principles we 
may later use to build upon. Academics is what 
bridges the gap between wanting and acliieving. 
However, we all know that the course of studying 
is not easy. It really is an obstacle that we must 
overcome. We doubt there is anyone who likes to 
attend an eight o'clock class, or "bum the mid- 
night oil" writing essays. So there is some truth in 
saying academics is a necessary evil. Yet, there are 
highlights to going to class and cherished memo- 
ries of favorite classes. Some of us might even 
admit that we miss a certain teacher and the fun 
times we had in their class.

Honors Day 

Honors Day is the day the University honors its academically exceptional 
students. In addition to University-wide recognition, students are also pre- 
sented with awards from their respective colleges. There are events through- 
out the afternoon, including receptions held by the four colleges. This year, 
the Honors Day Convocation was held on April 1 4 in Palmer Auditorium. 

Dr. Wendell Smith led the procession of students as Dr. Betty Louise 
Lumby, Professor of Music and University Organist, played "Feierlicher 
Einzug" by Richard Strauss. Then Dr. Robert M. McChesney welcomed ev- 
eryone to the occasion. Student Trustee Matthew Walker led the invocation. 
Monica Zerbe, Instructor of Music, sang the National Anthem. The Univer- 
sity of Montevallo Qmcert Choir, conducted by Dr. Robert E Wright, Pro- 
fessor of Music, sang "Jubilate Deo" and "Hark, 1 Hear the Harps Eternal." 

Dr. Wayne C. Seelbach, Provost and Vice President for Academic Af- 
fairs, and Dr. Glenda Isenhour, Vice President for Student Affairs, presented 
the University-wide awards. Dr. McChesney presented the honorees with their 
awards. Each college dean then presented the awards for students studying in 
their college. Dr. Michael L. Rowland presented the awards for the College of 
Arts and Sciences, Dr. Nancy S. Bell presented the awards for the Michael E. 
Stephens QiUege of Business, Dr. Terry G. Roberson presented the awards 
for the College of Education, and Dr. John W. Stewart presented the awards 
for the Qillege of Fine Arts. Libby Queen, President of the National Alumni 
Association, presented the annual-fund recognitions. 

To end the convocation, Zerbe led the singing of the Alma Mater and 
Walker led the benediction. Lumby played "Fanfare from 'La Peri"' and 
"Toccata pour Grand Orgue" for the recessional.

Many students attend Undergraduate Re- 
search Day for the first time because a friend 
is presenting a research project. The average 
student doesn't know much about the event; 
only that the project has seen more of their 
friend the past semester than they have. When 
one considers the time commitment made by 
students conducting undergraduate research, 
this comes as no surprise. 

Students at the University of Montevallo 
have an unusual opportunity to immerse 
themselves in extensive research at the un- 
dergraduate level. Many undergraduates here 
conduct research that would nomially be lim- 
ited to graduate-level students at most uni- 
versities. In addition to performing extensive 
research, students are given the chance to 
present their findings at the annual Under- 
graduate Research Day, an event designed to 
showcase the work of those students who par^

Undergraduate research is open to all students re- 
[ardless of major. Students must present proposals for 
indergraduate research projects to the College of Arts 

and Sciences Council on Undergraduate 
Research. The Council reviews proposals 
several times each year, and those students 
whose proposals are accepted move for- 
ward with their projects. 

For many of the students, the oppor- 
tunity of undergraduate research at Mon- 
tevallo is just the first step. Some apply to 
present their proposals at the national 
level. Participants from the 2002 program 
who went on to present at the national 
level include: Paul Barnes, Whitney Bur- 
ton, Anna Cleckler, Elizabeth DeWeese, 
Stephanie Etheredge, Jeremiah Harden, 
Brad Harwell, Blake Hudson, Kirsten 
Larsen, Nelda LeCroy, Rachel Lewis, 
Michelle Little, Heather Martin, 
Gwendolyn Pugh, and Jeff Purvis. Fac- 
ulty members who attended the confer- 
ence, which took place April 25-27 at 
the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater , 
are Jim Day, Jeannie Duke, Clark

Spring is a time of change and growth. This was also true for several 
hundred students gathered on the Flowerhill lawn on Saturday, May 
11, for Spring Commencement. For these students, the future was 
one of opportunity, change, and chances for self -growth. This year, 
Alison Perrin sang the National Anthem. Janet Simpson sang the 
state song, Alabama. Amos Snead, outgoing SGA President, made 
his final remarks. Blake Hudson, outgoing Senior Class President, 
gave the senior class pledge. Dr. Sydney Parker 7 1 , Vice President of 
the American College of Chest Physicians, gave the address.

If this is not the most intense search of college 
life, then I do not know what is! Athletics is more 
than taking an individual pursuit. It requires you 
to work with others who might not have the same 
drive and enthusiasm. Long, stressful practices and 
emotional flares are a common aspect of such a 
quest. Not to mention the individual dedication 
that is needed. Your individual skills set a limit to 
which sport you are capable of succeeding in. So 
begins the quest. Once this search is over, the 
team must have enough gumption to suffice the 
challenge. After this new quest as a team, the heat 
is on! Yet, it is an awesome feeling to know that 
you pursued and conquered, that you dominate 
the top, that you are one of the best (if not the 
best of the best)! Victories and drawbacks are what 
make the season, but how you work and learn by 
them determines the next.

I hrough( 

ghout its illustrious history, the women's volleyball program has been one of the strongest and most-successful athletic 
programs at UM. After reaching national prominence via 14 consecutive trips to the NAIA National Tournament from 1982- 
1995 , the program had a brief drop before bouncing back wjth r^onal success the past two seasons. Completing the 30th year 
as an intercoll^ate program in 2001 , the Falcons once again attained a high level of success, finishing with 30 wins and a 
second-place finish in the Gulf South Conference East Division. The Falcons competed in their third consecutive GSC Tourna- 
ment and narrowly missed an opportunity to compete in their second consecutive NCAA South Central R^onal Tournament. 
A roster heavily favored with veterans returned to the court in 2001 , ready to make a run at another NCAA r^onal bid. 
Seniors Christy Omiecinski and Jennifer Fry, junior Erika Van Arsdale, and sophomore Gatd Raposo looked to continue their 
on-court success. AU four were All-Gulf South Conference selections from the previous season. Also returning were veterans 
Christina Tamburello, Juan Bovell, Devonie McLarty , and Coleen Crocco. joining the team for 2001 were talented newcomers 
Joanna Greiner, Whitney Erb, and Jodie Ferguson. Also joining the team were new coaches Chris Rhoades and Tien Le. 

A trip to Colorado, UM's first trek westward in nearly two decades, opened the season. UM split four matches at the ASICS/ 
Colorado Christian Invitational, with victories over Cal Poly Pomona and toumey host Colorado Christian, and two losses to 
r^onal power University of Findlay. Raposo was named to the AU-Toumament Team. The next tournament, the UNA/ 
Ramada Inn Classic, in Florence, was filled with South Central regional opponents. UM lost to Henderson State and Truman 
State before picking up a victory against Hillsdale College, which started a 19-match consecutive winning streak. 

UM was the host institution for the UM/Jaguar Invitational, which was played at nearby Spain Park High School. UM 
managed to sweep four victories at the two-day tournament with wins over Albany State , Ouachita Baptist , Southern Arkansas , 
and Central Arkansas. Raposo was named the toumey MVP, while Fry was named to the AU-Toumament Team. 

Two victories on the road to open GSC play, at West Alabama and MUW, were 
followed with a four-match sweep at the second annual UM/Coca-Cbla/Shoney's Inn Clas- 
sic. Van Arsdale was named tournament MVP, while Raposo and Omiecinski were named 
to the AU-Toumament Team. A home victory over West Georgia was foUowed by two 
victories at West Florida and Valdosta State, setting up a showdown between the two top 
teams in the GSC East — UM and North Alabama. 

After an epic five-game battle that lasted for two-and-one-half hours, UM finaUy 
managed to defeat the Lions to post the biggest victory of the season. The loss was the first 
,J^ in GSC play for the then No. 2 Lions in two years. For the first time since joining the GSC 
as an associate member in 1995, UM was alone in first place. A five-game victory against 
West Alabama foUowed. UM then competed at the Lady Reddie Classic and, once 
again, managed to spUt four matches. The Falcons earned victories over Northwest Mis- 
souri State and Emporia State. However, a loss to Missouri Western State ended the win- 
ning streak. UM was defeated by Truman State to end the tournament. Raposo was named 
to the AU-Toumament Team. UM bounced back with another win streak of seven matches , 
but a key loss at home to Alabama-HuntsviUe not only ended a chance of a perfect record 
at home, it gave UM their first conference loss. When combined with a loss at North 
Alabama, the Lady Falcotis dropped out of first place in the GSC East. 
UM closed out the r^;ular season on a bright note With a victory at Lincoln Memorial, head coach Margaret "C.J." Sherman 
earned her 300th career victory as a coU^ate head coach. The victory also clinched the No. 2 seed in the East at the 2001 GSC VoUeybaU Tournament. At the 
tournament, UM picked up a victory over Harding before bowing out in the conference semifinals to Henderson State. Van Arsdale was named to the AU- 
Toumament Team. 

One of the biggest post-season awards went to a newcomer. Greiner was rewarded for her on-court play as she was named Gulf South Conference East Division 
Freshman of the Year. She became the first UM player since Rhesa Grady (1997) to eam the award. The 6-0 native of MandeviUe, La., finished third in the GSC 
in blocks and averaged 1 .94 kills in 1 26 games. Raposo and Van Arsdale were both named First Team AU-GSC, while Omiecinski was named to the Second Team 
All-GSC Omiecinski concluded her UM career No. 6 in career IdUs (1 370) and holds several single-season and career UM records. Omiecinski was also named GSC 
East Division Player of the Week twice, as was Fry. Raposo was named Player of the Week three times. 

With only three players departing, the 2002 Lady Falcons wUl be experienced to make another run at a conference crown, a berth in the conference tournament, 
and perhaps a berth in the NCAA South Central R^onal Tournament.

I t was a tale of two halves for the 2001 men's soccer program. After a slow start 
^ntne first half of the season, the Falcons rallied in conference matches in the 
second half. UM was successful in turning the season around and qualified for 
their third consecurive Gulf South Conference Men's Soccer Tournament. New 
head coach Ryan Pratt guided die Falcons through a successful campaign and 
finished with a record of 5-1 1 overall, and a second place (5-2) finish in the GSC. 

Several new faces took the field for the Falcons iii 2001 , and their inexperience 
showed in several narrow defeats against very stiff competition. As the team grew 
to know each other on the field, however, the victories came, and a 5-2 record in 
the competitive GSC gave the Falcons a No. 2 seed at the GSC Tournament. 

Pratt and the Falcons suffered losses in each of their first seven matches, in- 
cluding one-goal losses at Clayton College and State University, Florida Southern 
College, a doubleoverrime loss to Rollins College, and a loss at Saint Leo, to begin 
the GSC slate with an 0-7 overall record. 

The revival of the Falcons began in Harrogate, Tenn., at Lincoln Memorial. ., ^ , , ji ■ v/ i n

previous season. A victory at home over Central Arkansas was to follow to boost the Falcons' GSC record to 3-0. 

An overtime loss to defending GSC-champion Christian Brothers was followed with a non-conference loss to Martin 
Methodist. If the Falcons were to qualify for post-season play, they would have to win two games over a weekend in 
Arkansas at Harding and Ouachita Baptist. Gameys netted the game-winner against Harding and Karim scored both goals 
in a 2-1 victory at Ouachita Baptist, clincliing the post-season bid for the Falcons. UM closed out the season with a 1-0 loss 
at West Horida. 

With an eerie similarity to 2000, UM once again faced the Argonauts in the semifinal round of the GSC Tournament. 
Unfortunately, the Falcons did not have the same result and suffered a 5-2 loss to the eventual conference champion. 
Karim and senior midfielder Brent Gallagher converted penalty kicks to account for the Falcons' two goals. 

At the end of the season, Karim was named to the Second Team National Soccer Coaches Association of America/ 
Adidas Men's Soccer All-South Region Team. Karim finished sixth in the conference in goals per game, and seventh in 

For the second consecutive season, Karim was named to the First Team AU-GSC. Joining Karim as a First Team All-GSC 
selection was freshman David Minchella. Henry was named to the Second Team All-GSC. Karim, along with junior de- 
fender Joseph Ward, was named to the GSC All-Tournament Team. 

Karim led the team in scoring with 20 points on nine goals and two assists. Gameys was next with seven goals and two 
assists, while Henry and Minchella were tied for third in scoring with 10 points each. Henry netted five goals, while 
Minchella had three goals and four assists. Goalkeeper Corey Jones managed a mtxlest .672 save percentage and 2.80 GAA.

^ 1 new era of women's soccer began at Montevallo in 2001. Patricia Hughes 
tooK over the reins of the Lady Falcon program and helped the team survive through 
a challenging schedule to post their fourth consecutive winning season and third 
consecutive berth in the Gulf South Conference Tournament. Hughes, along with 
student assistant Laura Hazeldine, helped UM conclude the 2001 season with an 
overall record of 9-7 and a fourth-place (5-3) finish in the GSC. 

The season started off well, with two victories at Clayton College and State 
University on the road and Auburn-Montgomery at home. A lopsided loss at home 
to NCAA Division I Samford was followed by a pair of victories against Sunshine 
State Conference members Horida Southern College at home and at Saint Leo 
University in key South Regional games. A loss at perennial NCAA power Univer- 
sity of Tampa was followed by a loss at West Horida to open the GSC schedule. 

A victory at Lincoln Memorial evened the GSC slate at 1-1 , however, a disap- 
pointing overtime loss at home to Alabama-Huntsville set the Lady Falcons back 

at 1-2. UM was able to respond with a shutout victory at home against Central ., oj/j,iitt /

lar season with a loss at home to Lynn University. 

UM wound up with the No. 4 seed at the GSC Tournament, and drew Christian Brothers University. UM stayed close 
early, but eventually dropped a 5-0 decision to the NCAA tournament bound Lady Bucs. 

At the conclusion of the tournament, Adrianne Peters and senior defender Heather Huot were named to the GSC All- 
Tournament Team. Peetra Vaisanen was tabbed as a GSC Player of the Week, and Peters was named to the GSC All- 
Academic Team for the second consecutive season with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Peters was also nominated for the CoSida/ 
Verizon All-Academic Team. 

Several Lady Falcons continued to etch their names in the all-time and single-season record book. Junior goalkeeper 
Peters, named to the First Team AU-GSC for the second consecutive season, enjoyed measured success with a 2.1 2 GAA 
and four shutouts. In three years at UM, the Huntsville native amassed ten UM single-season and career goalkeeping 
records. She is the career leader in matches played, minutes played, victories, and shutouts. Sophomore forward Vaisanen, 
also named to the First Team All-GSC, held the single-season record for assists and assists per match. Senior midfielder Jo 
Vermeer was a Second Team All-GSC selection. 

Vaisanen led the team in scoring, with 1 2 goals and 26 points, while sophomores Susanne Qvick and Jessica Lindell were 
tied for second with 1 2 points with four goals and four assists each. Freshman midfielder Cissi Wikstrom was next with two 
goals and three assists, while senior midfielder Valerie Davis closed out her UM career with two goals and two assists. 

200 i , was immed to the GSC All 
Touniament Team.

he dif f eraice between an average team and a very good team is that a good team finds a way to make 
the mSst of the opportunities presented to them. Since joining the NCAA Division II and the Gulf South 
Conference prior to the start of the 1995 season, the University of Montevallo men's basketball program has 
not taken advantage of those opportunities. 

The 2001-02 roster featured two players returning to the team after a hiatus, including leading scorer 
Undrae Lilly returning for his senior season. Senior forward Kantonio Davis was the lone returning starter for 
DM, and was joined by fellow returnees Jonathan Bailey, Kenneth Cooper, and Kirk Norris, and Otis Robinson. 
The newcomers included talented freshmen twin brothers Kashif and Naazrr Russell from Pontiac, Mich., 
along with junior-college transfers Reuben HoUins and Dedi Muriari, and freshmen Daniel Melo and Justin 

UM spent the majority of the first half of the season working hard, learning, and growing as a team. Five 
consecutive losses to begin the season in one of the most-challenging pre-conference slates gave the Falcons 
valuable experience during the first half. A victory at Aabama-Huntsville not only gave UM their first 
victory of the season; more importantly it was a key road victory in GSC play, which later aided the Falcons in 
their run for their first-ever post-season appearance in the GSC Men's Basketball Tournament. Losses at 
NCAA Division I Aabama State and two losses at the University of West Florida Tournament were followed 
with a victory at home over Elizabeth City State. A loss at Kennesaw State to close out December left the 
Falcons with an overall mark of 2-8 heading back into GSC play. 

Unlike in years past when Montevallo struggled in GSC play , the Falcons posted four victories in their next 
six games to improve to 5-2 in the conference and be among the leaders in the GSC East Division at the 
halfway point of conference play. 

The first half was capped with a convincing victory at Valdosta State. 
A non-conference victory over Oakland City University was followed 
with a loss at home to Aabama-Huntsville. UM was able to post two key 
victories in their next two games, a two-point victory at North Aabama 
and at home against West Florida. Losses at Lincoln Memorial and West 
Alabama were followed with a victory at home over eventual GSC Tour- 
nament and NCAA regional qualifier West Georgia. Despite a loss in 
their final GSC game against Valdosta State, UM managed to qualify 
for their first-ever GSC Men's Basketball Tournament. UM, the No. 3 
seed from the East, met Delta State in the tourney quarterfinals. UM 
nearly overcame a 12-point second-half deficit, but eventually came up 
on the short end of a 77-73 decision to the Statesmen. UM concluded 
the 2001-2002 season with a 10-17 record overall and a third-place 
finish (8-6) in the GSC East Division. 

The play of the Falcons, especially in conference play, impressed many 
GSC coaches. For his diligent work with the UM men's basketball pro- 
gram, head coach Jeff Daniels was named the GSC Coach of the Year. 
Daniels became the first coach to ever receive the award from the GSC. 
Aso receiving post-season accolades and awards was freshman guard 
Kashif Russell , who was named the GSC East Division Freshman of the 
Year. Russell appeared in all 27 games for UM and was fourth on the team in scoring and second in steals. 
Russell was the first men's basketball player to receive the honor. 

Lilly led the team and was eighth in the GSC in scoring (16.0 ppg). Davis was second in scoring (12.1) and 
led the team in rebounding (7.3 rpg). Lilly was named to the First Team All-GSC, while Davis was named to 
the Second Team All-GSC. Lilly also led the team in assists (3.2), while Davis was among the national leaders 
in field-goal percentage (.657).

fter a pair of nine-win seasons the past two years, it was hoped that the 2001-2002 edition of the 
University of Montevallo women's basketball team would improve on that mark. With a balance of newcom- 
ers and experienced returnees, the team experienced another up and down season. The Lady Falcons experi- 
enced a positive step in the right direction, with three consecutive victories at the end of the year to finish at 
13-13 overall and a seventh place (6-10) finish in the Gulf South Conference East Division. 

Returning as seniors were post player Erica Harris and guard Bridget HoUis. Junior center Cara Melton and 
sophomores Edwina Johnson and Janene Johnson also returned. Joining the team were junior-college transfers 
Lx)rie Graves and Anna Martin, along with freshmen Qiana Dean, Tiffany HoUon, and Shea Panter. 

The season began at the Coca-Cola/Shoney's Inn Classic, with UM splitting two games, falling to Tuskegee 
University in overtime, before posting their first victory of the season with a victory over Spelman College. 
Two key victories at the Horton Homes Classic in MilledgeviUe, Ga., against the University of Tampa and 
Saint Leo University, were followed with a loss to Kennesaw State University at home. 

UM dropped a decision to the University of Alabama-Huntsville to open GSC play in early December. The 
team bounced back with a victory over Miles College before a loss at the University of Arkansas-Monticello. 
A victory at Kennesaw State at the end of December gave the Lady Falcons a 5-4 overall record heading back 
into GSC play. 

A loss at home to North Alabama was followed with a road victory at Mississippi University for Women. 
UM dropped their next four games, a loss at the University of West Florida, home losses to Lincoln Memorial 
University and to eventual GSC East Division champion University of West Alabama, and a loss at the 
University of West Georgia. 

UM was able to record a three-point victory at Valdosta State Univer- 
sity to close out the first half of the GSC season. A loss at North Ala- 
bama was sandwiched between a non-conference victory at Spelman 
Collie and two conference home victories over MUW and West Florida. 
After two losses at Lincoln Memorial and West Alabama, UM was able 
to record three victories (West Georgia, Valdosta State, and Miles) to 
finish with the most victories since the 1998-1999 season. 

Harris concluded her career at UM second all-time in school history 
in career rebounding. The Birmingham native was the first UM women's 
basketball player to be named to the Second Team Daktronics NCAA 
Division II All-South Region Team. Harris led the nation in rebounding 
(12.6 rpg) and was fifth in the GSC in scoring (16.6) and field goal 
percentage (.529). She was named to the First Team All-GSC team, while 
Melton was named to the Second Team All-GSC. Melton finished the 
season second on the team in scoring (12.4) and in rebounding (9.3) for 
the second consecutive season. Melton led the GSC in blocked shots and 
was among the national leaders in blocks per game. Harris was also named 
as GSC East Division Player of the weeks three times, while Melton was 
named Player of the Week twice. HoUis was third on the team in scoring, also averaging double figures (10.9 
ppg) and led the team in three-point field goals made.

ith the disappointment of a sub .500 season behind them, the 2002 University of Montevallo 
lebair^am looked to the new season with renewed optimism. The newcomers that made up the 2002 
Falcons were a mixture of junior-college transfers as well as freshman newcomers. The inexperience showed at 
times, but the team pulled through at the end of the season, winning their last four consecutive games to 
finish seven games above the .500 mark. UM concluded the season with an overall record of 29-22 and a 
sixth-place finish in the Gulf South Conference East Division. 

In past years, the Montevallo baseball team would come out of die gate with better-than-average success. 
2002 was no different as the Falcons won 12 of their first 13 games, including 10 consecutive games to start 
the season. Included in the first 12 victories was collegiate victory number 1 ,000 for longtime mentor Bob 
Riesener. Four victories later, Riesener would become the all-time winningest baseball coach in the state of 
Alabama with a 3-2 victory over Siena Heights University on Feb. 24. 

As the season continued, the ups and downs associated with an inexperienced ball club begaii to show. UM 
dropped five of their next seven games and started the GSC schedule with a record of 14-6 overall. 

UM dropped two of three games in series against Valdosta State, Alabama-Hunts ville, West Alabama, and 
West Florida, and earned a split against West Georgia, with the third game of the series cancelled due to rain. 
The Falcons enjoyed moderate success in the non-conference games, including a victory over Columbus State 
during spring break week. 

After winning the first of a three-game series against UAH, the Falcons dropped their next six games, 
including being swept in a three-game series at North Alabama. 

With the losses, UM almost posted their second consecutive sub .500 season. However, the Falcons rallied 
with a victory at home over Spring Hill and a three-game sweep at home over Lincoln Memorial to end the 
regular season. The three-game sweep over the RailspHtters not only as- 
sured a winning season, but propelled the Falcons out of the GSC East 
basement to a sixth-place finish. 

As a team, UM batted .290 for the season. Six players finished above 
the .300 mark in batting, led by freshman newcomer Trent Preuitt, who 
narrowly beat senior outfielder Drew Downs for the lead in batting. Preuitt 
batted .333 and led the team in several offensive categories including 
base hits, runs scored, RBI, walks, and stolen bases. Downs, who was 
later named to the Second Team All-GSC, batted .331 , while Bill Th- 
ompson (.326), John Robson (.326), Jeremy Adams (.313), and Jeff Jones 
(.300) also batted at .300 or better. 

On the mound, senior Brad Haynes led the team in victories and 
ERA, while fellow seniors Nick Vandegriff , David Epperson, and Nick 
Williams also enjoyed positive success in their final season at UM. Haynes 
posted a 3.92 ERA with seven victories. Vandegriff led in games started 
(13) and innings pitched (74.2). Epperson collected a team-high sbc saves, 
while Williams led the team in strikeouts (65) with Epperson finishing 
second (57).

Discovery is the word that describes Greek life the 
most. From that first moment you are invited to 
consider joining, to the moment you must make 
your decision, you spend time discovering the 
different fraternities and sororities available and 
the benefits they have to offer. The mixers were a 
blast! You made your way through them, laugh- 
ing, mingling, learning. You even had the thrill of 
waiting for the announcement that you were in. 
Rush is one big exploration. You spend time look- 
ing into it, and try to become familiar with it by 
experimenting. You went to the functions and 
made your decision based upon them. You might 
have even tried it out as an adventure. Either way, 
you are searching for your place among the 
masses. The socializing was great; the relationships 
were enduring; the moments together were laugh 
evoking. This was probably one of your most- 
exciting discoveries of the year.

ing frisbee, flag football, volleyball, and soccer, 
and did well in all of them. 

They participated in several philanthropy 
projects involving Alpha Gamma Delta Foun- 
dation, including Alpha Gam Lip Jam and a 
walk for diabetes. Alpha Gamma Delta had 
many social functions in the fall, including date 
parties, fomials, and mixers.

of the Zeta Nu chapter initiated a wonderful 
class of new members. They kicked off the year 
with a f)ool party for Bid Day and mixed with

alley. Anchor Splash was a huge success this 
year. Delta Gamma raised nearly $2 ,000 for Ser- 
vice for Sight. 

The girls enjoyed dressing up in costumes

have had a more exciting year. Maegan Harris 
was named Miss University of Montevallo and 
went on to compete at the Miss Alabama Pag-

The Phi Mus can be found in almost every 
on-campus activity, but their focus remains their 
philanthropy, Children's Miracle Network. 
With their annual events Rock-A-Thon and 
The Dating Game, along with their first car 
wash, the Phi Mus raised money that went di- 
recdy to help Children's Hospital in Bimiing-

great one; one that will not be forgotten.

The groups had to line up at the startmg line and run ten yards; then form their human 
pyramid. Below: The performers are dressed m costume and completely in character for Skit 
Mght. This slat included girls from different groups acting out the rr\any different 
characteristics of t/it'ir felhir Greek groups. 

Above: Tlie AKLs gel grocny with tlieir skit 
performances. AR the groups gave it tlieir best and put on 
neat and funny shows for t/ie tlieir crou'ii of peers. Right: 
The Alpha Gammas and the Delta Qiis struggle for a 
moment to get their pyramid working. Each team had to 
stay in their positions far five seconds and then run back 
to the finish line in order to win the game. 

RigJu; These two Greek girls get a little 
wild and crazy portraying the many fun 
elements of life in a sorority. Many of tlie 
skits involved hoiv being part of a Greek 
organization can be a great experience. 
Far right: This toiuer of people came 
luinblii\g to tlie ground dunrg the 
pyramid buddmg. Many groups had 
trouble balancing the vertical structures 
far the amount of time required to win.

Clockwise from top: These tuw stiulents stop by to vote for t/ie 2003 
SGA officers. Many tneinbers of SGA, UPC, and t/ic student body 
as a whole got to am\e out for the Freshman Fomm Barbecue. The 
Back w Sdtml Bcuh sponsored by UPC, had nuiny fun aaivities such 
as die slide for studaits to carrie and get ready for die school year to 
begin. T?ic Alpha Gamma Deltas got togetlter as a group to support 
f/ie Relay for Life which was }\eld in Bibb Graves. 

My mother always said to be careful who I hung 
around, because I would begin to act like them. 
She was right! Not only wiU you act like them, but 
you will also begin to think Uke them! Sounding a 
bit scary, eh?! I guess that depends on who you 
choose to be with. Well, it is not all bad. Change 
comes in many ways. Affiliations are a big way to 
initiate a transition from one phase of life to an- 
other. There are so many organizations on campus 
to choose from. The moments spent with each 
member cause you to change individually, but it 
can also lead to positional change as well. A cer- 
tain affiliation might inspire you to change your 
goals and cause you to pursue a different course. 
One might even change his/her opinion about a 
certain group after active participation with them. 
Organizations might cause for lots of hard work 
on your behalf, but it sure is a good way to make 
lasting relationships, and moments to talk about 
for years to come!

Long-time University employee Helen Perkins died Saturday, Nov. 10, 


Perkins began working at the University in 1 97 1 as graduate registrar and 
teacher certification officer. From September 1 984 to September 1988, she served 
as certification officer and assistant to the vice president for academic affairs for 
graduate studies. In September 1988, she began work as the University's regis- 
trar, serving in that capacity until her retirement in 1999. In 1996, when the University became a 
member of the NCAA, Perkins took on the responsibility of serving as compliance officer, a position 
in which she also served untril the time of her retiremait. Upon retiring from the University, Perkins 
began working as a senior project leader for SCT (Computer Services), where she was employed at the 
time of her death. 

Prior to coming to work for the University, Perkins worked as a continuity director for WTVY, 
in Dothan. From 1963 until 1970, she served as a missionary in Brazil, working for the Presbyterian 
Church U.S. 

Perkins graduated from Sydney Lanier High School, in Montgomery, in 1954. She went on to 
earn the B.A. degree from the University of Alabama in 1 958 , and the M.A. degree from the Univer- 
sity of Montevallo in 1983. 

Perkins' no-nonsense approach to business, coupled with her sense of humor, made her a woman 
who was impossible to ignore. She will no doubt be remembered for those traits, as well as for going 
above and beyond the call of duty, particularly where students were concerned.

The Ahxbamian, Montevallo's official newspaper, was established in January 1924. 
Before it was named The Alabamian , it was called The Van Guard. Editor David demons 
led his staff through another year of great news coverage and production of many excel- 
lent issues of the newspaper. T/ie Alabamian was published twice a month and it came 
out on Wednesdays. 

The staff had many returning members. Stephanie Comer was the News Editor and 
in charge of circulation. Joshua Buckley was the Sports and Layout Editor, Meredith M. 
Prosser, a former member of the Mcnitage Staff, served as the Business Manager, and 
Chris Megginson was a staff writer. The Advisor of the publication was Cynthia 
Shackelford, who is also the Director of Public Relations at the University of Mon- 
tevallo. Montage Advisor Diane Kennedy-Jackson and the Public Relations Department 
Secretary Marsha Littleton also made many contributions to the staff. 

The picture above shows Editor David demons and staff member Stephanie Comer 
in the downstairs of the Will Lyman House. Both of the Student Publications offices are 
located upstairs in the Lyman House. The picture to the right is of Bradley Hodges, a 
Gold Side member in the heat of the moment celebrating his side's homecoming victory. 
Hodges is holding up the College Night issue of T/ie Alabanvan, which was hot off the 
presses shortly after the winners were announced. 

T?ie Alabamian staff worked hard this year like many others in the past to give 
detailed coverage of events on the campus, in the local community, and the issues on 
the national and global level.

The yearbook staff has shed blood, sweat, and tears to 
produce the 2002 edition of the Montage. Many weekends 
were spent in the Montage office working on pages and writ- 
ing articles. 

The yearbook came into existence at the University back 
when it was still the Alabama Qrl's Industrial School. The 
first edition of the yearbook , T?ie Qiwtoscmto , was published 
in 1907. T\\£ Technala was the second name of the publica- 
tion when the school became the Alabama Girls' Technical 
Institute in 1911. The book has recorded priceless events 
throughout the University's history. In 1940, the name was 
changed to Montage. 

The 2002 Montage staff is pictured here outside of the 
Lyman House. In the front row from left to right are Tina 
Strozier and Editor Mary Lott. Standing in the back row are 
Patricia Lovelady, Emily Beth Daniel, and AJfye Green. Each 
of the members pictured served as staff writers and photog- 
raphers. The publication Advisor was Diane Kennedy-Jack- 
son, who also gave up many weekends and evenings to help 
produce the yearbook.

Much like Dec. 7, 1941 (the attack on Pearl Harbor), Sept. 11, 2001 also became "a day 
that will live in infamy." 

At 8:48 a.m., a hijacked American Airlines commercial jetliner crashes into one of New 
York City's World Trade Center towers. At 9:05, a second plane crashes into the second 

As people try to evacuate, the impact and heat from the crash cause the first tower to 
tumble to the ground in enormous clouds of smoke and debris. The second tower collapses 
shortly thereafter, leaving nothing but ash, rubble and destruction for miles where one 
of our nation's greatest landmarks once stood.

In an address to the nation, President George W. Bush A 
demands Afghanistan's ruling party (the Taliban) hand 
over bin Laden. The Taliban attempts to negotiate the 
United States' demand, saying they will not cooperate 
without evidence of bin Laden's involvement in the 
attacks. Bush states the demand is non-negotiable, and 
the U.S. will take retaliatory action against Afghanistan if 
they refuse to hand bin Laden over.

"And tonight, the United States makes the following demands 

on the Taliban... These demands are not open to negotiation 

or discussion. ..This is the world's fight. ..the fight of all who 

believe in progress... tolerance, and freedom... We will rally 

the world to this cause by our efforts, our courage. We will

e of the people America will 
t remember in 2001 and for 
s to come are those who risked 
Ir lives to save others during and 
'r the Sept. 1 1 terrorist attacks. 

■^ As terrified crowds poured down the stairs 
and out of the Word Trade Center towers, fire- 
fighters and police made their way in. Through 
rubble and darkness, they provided oxygen 
masks and helped people escape to safety. By 
nightfall on Sept. 1 1 , the estimate of those 
missing or killed in the line of duty included 
more than 300 firefighters and at least 85 
police officers.

inagazine's 2001 Person of the Year. 

^ One of the four hijacked planes in the terror- 
ist attack. United Airlines Flight 93, crashed 
near the woods of Shanksville, Pa. The FBI 
believes the plane was intended for another 
strategic target (possibly the White House) 
and that some of the passengers, including 
Thomas Burnett and Jeremy Click, battled 
with the hijackers in the final moments before 
the plane crashed. Both Burnett and Click had 
phoned family members and spoke of a plan 
to foil the hijackers. "We are all going to 
die," Burnett reportedly told his wife minutes 
before the crash, "but a group of us is going to 
do something about it." 

I M Thousands of American Red Cross volun-

and the families of those who died or were 
reported missing after Sept. 1 1 . 

At $2 billion, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake 

City, Utah were the most expensive winter games ever. But 
despite beefed-up security and underlying worry 
over terrorist acts, this year's games, themed 
"Light the Fire Within/' burned strong 
with patriotism, pride and 
amazing athletic performances. 

Snowboarding became an official Olympic sport for the 
first time this year, and the U.S. swept the competi- 
tion. Ross Powers, Danny Kass and Jarret Thomas 
took the gold, silver and bronze in the 
men's halfpipe (giving the U.S. its first 
Winter Olympics medals sweep in 
45 years). American Kelly Clark 
also took the gold in the 
women's halfpipe.
